Tournaments

HollywoodSportsbook is pleased to offer a wide variety of tournament formats and games available to you 24 hours a day! In addition to being a fun and exciting way to gain a greater all-round poker experience, tournaments are also a powerful way to build your bankroll and get a great return on a minimal investment. In a tournament, as opposed to a live ring-game, the most money one can risk is the buy-in for that tournament. All players start with the same amount of chips and play continues until one player has won all the chips. Tournament chips have no cash value. Tournaments are available in all the poker games we offer; Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Stud and Stud Hi-Lo.

We offer Multi-table, Sit & Go, Bounty and Heads-up tournaments in various Freeze-out, Re-buy and Shoot-out formats. We also offer satellite tournaments to gain entry into much bigger events and freerolls that cost nothing to enter. Scroll down the page to read more about the different tournaments available.

Guaranteed Tournaments

Guaranteed poker tournaments carry a minimum guaranteed prize pool regardless of the number of players that buy-in. You'll find a variety of Guaranteed tournaments ranging in buy-ins and guaranteed levels running daily here at HollywoodSportsBook.

Bounty Tournaments

Probably the most satisfying tournament here at HollywoodSportsBook. When you knock another player out of the tournament you'll collect the cash bounty on that player's head. So not only do you rake a huge pot but you're getting paid cash to 'felt' a fellow competitor.
In a Bounty tournament, a percentage of the prize pool will be taken out and used as a bounty on the heads of each player. The overall prize payout structure remains the same. As you eliminate players from a tournament you'll collect that player's bounty.

Regardless of your tournament placing, you can still make a profit on bounties. For example, in a $2 buy-in tournament, $1 will contribute to the prize pool, and $1 will be paid to the bounty field. Every player has a $1 price on their head, so simply eliminate two players and you have already made your buy-in back, with only profit to come!

Bounty tournament will be available with many different prize structures. The bounty prize pool can be customized, anywhere from 10% of the buy-in to a full 100%! Simply check out our tournament listings in the HollywoodSportsBook lobby to see the prize pool structure for any one of our upcoming tournaments.

Shoot Out Tournaments

Unlike a normal multi-table tournament where tables are balanced by moving players aroun, shoot out tournaments will play each table down to a set number of players in each round until there is a final table remaining.

A simple example is a Shootout tournament with 100 entrants. Ten tables with ten players each will begin the tournament for round one. A certain number of players from each table will progress to round two (the number will change depending on the tournament). In our example, the top three players from each table will advance, meaning a total of 30 players remain. Round two will begin with three tables of ten, and again the top three players of each table will progress to the next round, with nine players battling it out at the final table!

Shootouts are definitely exciting but require a different strategy then regular MTT's.

Shootout Payout Structure

Place Finished Number of Players
1 to 2 3 to 8 9 to 32 33 to 64 65 to 128 128+
1st 100% 75% 45% 35% 30% 27%

5th-8th 7.5% 4% 3.5%
9th-16th 2% 1.5%

Final Table uses Standard Tournament Payout based on number of players at final table.
